The Sutherland Cranial College of Osteopathy, Stroud

9 March -40 postgraduate cranial osteopaths attended the presentation entitled “The Effect of Jaw Problems on the Rest of the Body.” As usual I divided it into two sections – “The Osteopathy/ TMJ Connection” and “The Osteopathy/ Orthodontic Connection”. Two short  video clips showed some of Dr Brendan Stack’s cases linking jaw position and  movement disorders, such as Tourettes. A table demonstration was set up for the short break.

The aim was to demonstrate that an integrated approach to treatment results in a better outcome for patients. Signs and symptoms relating to TMJ and malocclusion were discussed. It was stressed that early correction of these imbalances is simpler to treat and the result is more likely to be stable. I found this meeting to be most enjoyable, not only because of  the warm welcome and hospitality which I received but mainly due to the high level of cranial knowledge of those attending. There was plenty of interaction and the questions were well thought out. I understand that the group would like to participate in the next BSSCMD seminar and we look forward to welcoming their contribution.

    Thank you for a really interesting presentation, great speaking and fascinating video footage. I was very pleased to gain further understanding of how osteopathy integrates with functional orthodontics. Rebecca

It reinforced for me the necessity for Osteopaths and dentists to continue to work together in mutual understanding. I think Dr Helen Jones is doing very important work in this field.
